Donovan McNabb took to the airwaves in DC today to talk about the reception he expects to receive in Philly. [Washington Post]
"Honestly, I think that I would be cheered. More cheered than booed," McNabb said during "The Donovan McNabb Show" on ESPN 980. "No matter what the situation is right now, that I'm with a different team and obviously it's kind of a rival, and it wasn't by my choice.
"But the whole deal about it was 11 years. It was a successful 11 years. And you had a lot of great times, a lot of great moments [and] a lot of exciting plays. Obviously, some down times, but you have that in the NFL. But there's more exciting things that happened in 11 years."
I completely agree with everything he said about his time here, but I’m not so sure he's going to get the groundswell he expects from 70k hardened Philadelphians. After all, Justin Bieber made him wait for an autograph.
